Weight when fully developed

Postby cardinalfanUSA » Wed Sep 13, 2006 6:21 pm

My APBT is 11 months old and is 18" tall and weighs 39 lbs.
Over the past few months, he's been gaining about 2-4 lbs a month, but over the past 2-3 weeks he hasn't gained at all.
My question is: about how much will he weigh when he's fully developed?

He's probably pretty close to done growing...

My pup quit growing at 8 months... he was 40 lbs then, and he's 42 now at 13 months.

My dog gained almost 8 or 10 pounds after he was a year old, just by filling out and getting muscular.

Ya, they will start filling out and gain probably 5-10 pounds from 1-3, and thats about it. They start getting muscle and may get a little wider.
